    The Senate blocked the latest attempt by the GOP to repeal Obamacare in a midnight vote, stalling one of President Trump’s main campaign promises. 

    Who were the three GOP lawmakers who blocked the bill? Never Trumper Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona in a 49-51 vote. After McCain gave his thumbs down and said ‘no’, gasps could be heard from the Democrat side of the aisle (McCain’s friends).

    CNBC reports:

    The Senate blocked the latest Republican attempt to repeal Obamacare in a dramatic floor vote early Friday morning, yet again stalling — for now — the key campaign goal that eludes the GOP six months into the Trump administration.

    Three GOP votes — Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska and John McCain of Arizona — sank the measure in a 49-51 vote. McCain, who recently returned to the Senate after getting diagnosed with brain cancer, cast his “no” vote to audible gasps on the chamber’s floor, according to reporters there.

    Senate Republicans released the plan late Thursday just hours before voting on an amendment to take up the bill.

    Here are the provisions in the so-called skinny repeal bill, which the GOP titled the Health Care Freedom Act:

    It would repeal the individual mandate, which is the requirement that most Americans buy insurance or pay a penalty. The provision was intended to help control costs by encouraging younger, healthier people to enter the market. Republicans have said it forced people to buy plans they did not want. The bill would roll back the employer mandate, a similar provision that says large employers have to provide insurance for their workers. The plan would expand a program that allows states to waive certain provisions under Obamacare. It would suspend the medical device tax. The proposal would increase contribution limits for tax-free health savings accounts. It would defund women’s health provider Planned Parenthood for one year.

    President Trump has repeatedly urged lawmakers to come together to get a functioning healthcare system in place since Obamacare is failing.

    It is becoming increasingly clear that the Republicans do not want to repeal Obamacare. They have had SEVERAL years to come up with a solid plan, yet fail at every chance.

    As TGP previously reported, in a stunning admission, former Minority Whip Eric Cantor now admits the GOP was never serious about repealing the healthcare bill. It was all a charade. 

    He (Cantor) says he wasn’t the only one aware of the charade: “We sort of all got what was going on, that there was this disconnect in terms of communication, because no one wanted to take the time out in the general public to even think about ‘Wait a minute—that can’t happen.’ ” But, he adds, “if you’ve got that anger working for you, you’re gonna let it be.”

    Cantor isn’t the only one who believes repealing Obamacare is a charade. The Gateway Pundit reported in the past week, former Speaker Boehner said the prospects of repealing Obamacare were non-existent.

    Former House Speaker, John Boehner said the GOP won’t be able to repeal and replace Obamacare at a closed-door tradeshow in Las Vegas, NV Friday.

    John Boehner told a private crowd that Obamacare will never be repealed or replaced by the GOP because Americans and state officials are used to it in, a video obtained by The Washington Post.

    Boehner also warned that Republicans will get annihilated in 2018 midterm elections if they fail to pass healthcare and tax legislation.

    “Here we are, seven months into this year, and yet they’ve not passed this bill. Now, they’re never…they’re not going to repeal and replace Obamacare. It’s been around too long. And the American people have gotten accustomed to it. Governors have gotten accustomed to this Medicaid expansion, and so trying to pull it back is really not going to work.”

    Conservative watchdog group Judicial Watch has called for the Trump administration to end Congressional exemption of Obamacare. This may be the ONLY way for Congress to actually get anything done–if it actually affected their own lives!

    (Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch requested the Trump administration stop members of Congress and their staff from unlawfully purchasing, with taxpayer subsidies, health insurance through the District of Columbia’s small business exchange.  The Judicial Watch request was made on June 14, 2017, to the Centers for Medicare Medicaid Services (CMS) as part of a process set out by the Department of Health and Human Services to reform the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare.

    President of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton had this to say about the frauds in Congress:

    “Congress, through fraud, is violating Obamacare to get taxpayers to pay for its health insurance. If the Trump administration required Congress to follow the law, taxpayers would be saving money, pure and simple. We hope the Trump administration will end this clear violation of law by Congress.”

    Tracey Grossman, self-described “ADL Groupie” and current ADL Florida Regional Chair, really wants the world to know how down she is wid da LGBT struggle.

    Tweets by tracey_grossman

    She does not tweet that much, but, when she does, there’s a reasonable chance it will be to shout to the world how tolerant she is when it comes to LGBT issues.

    For example, last month, she passed along this colorful tweet from Sesame Street:

    Sesame Street is proud to support families of all shapes, sizes, and colors. ❤️ pic.twitter.com/H3uzD5XwUu

    — Sesame Street (@sesamestreet) June 23, 2017

    The following week she passed this along:

    Tremendous stride for equality in Germany. https://t.co/f1mOUH9s8n

    — ADL (@ADL_National) June 30, 2017

    More recenly, earlier today, Grossman pushed this petition drive along:

    — Tracey Grossman (@tracey_grossman) July 27, 2017

    President Trump’s annoucement that he plans to reinstate a ban on transgender individuals from serving in any capacity in the U.S. armed forces really seems to have gotten under the skin of Grossman, who, again, really does not even do all that much tweeting. She had posted that same petition drive along sixteen hours previously as well:

    — Tracey Grossman (@tracey_grossman) July 27, 2017

    Around the same time, she posted this, which, as ADL CEO Jonathan Grossman did, claimed the extremely far-fetched number of 150,000 transgender military personnel:

    — Tracey Grossman (@tracey_grossman) July 27, 2017

    And so on. (One can assess for oneself the proportion of LGBT-related tweets on Grossman’s Twitter page.)
    Tweets by tracey_grossman

    Grossman and the ADL are of course entitled to their opinions.

    Here’s the real problem though:

    When it comes to actual treatment of actual LGBT individuals, the records of Grossman and the ADL leave a lot to be desired.

    The ADL, via a cynical, slanderous effort to put to put targets on the backs of prominent Trump supporters, has targeted The Gateway Pundit’s openly gay White House correspondent, Lucien Wintrich.

    Wintrich was ambushed last week by the supposedly-anti-“hate” ADL, which included him among other President Trump-supporting individuals and organizations in its donations-from-leftist-bigots-driven fundraising-driven “From Alt Right to Alt Lite: Naming the Hate” “report.”

    As if to subtly mock him, the “anti-‘hate'” ADL made a point to include gratuitous details about Wintrich, e.g. “During the 2016 campaign, Wintrich organized a ‘Twinks4Trump’ photo series featuring provocative pictures of men wearing ‘Make America Great Again’ caps.”

    The ADL has as of yet not so much as retracted, much less apologized for and begun the process of settling damages related to, its despicable, dangerously-targeting-given-the-aftermath-of-James Hodgkinson’s-rampage “report.”

    Grossman did her own part to help spread the vile slander.

    As reported here Tuesday:

    One of the more powerful liberal propaganda houses, known as the “Anti-Defamation League”, published a murder hit list Tuesday on reported “Alt-Right” and “Alt-Lite” “extremists” in America.
    Apparently the only qualifiers for “extremism” are patriotism, the belief in small government, and support for the current president (according to the left).
    Make no mistake about it, the ADL posted this disgusting report as a hit on ALL Donald Trump supporters.
    The report put a target on ALL Trump supporters — most notably the conservatives and some they brand as “Alt Right” and “Alt Light” activists mentioned in their report.

    The report put a target on ALL Trump supporters — most notably the conservatives and some they brand as “Alt Right” and “Alt Light” activists mentioned in their report. …

    … Mike Cernovich led the Trump movement in the run-up to the 2016 election and broke numerous anti-Hillary stories.

    Gavin McInnes leads the Proud Boys (a patriotic American fraternity) movement and is an extremely popular radio host at both Rebel Media and Compound Media.

    Popular New Right reporter Jack Posobiec also made the list. He actually held a rally AGAINST political violence.

    Lucian Wintrich is The Gateway Pundit’s White House Correspondent and made the list because of his skyrocketing popularity and charisma. Lucian is a popular campus speaker and media magnate, having been profiled in dozens of publications from The New Yorker and Hollywood Reporter to several papers internationally.

    Lucian Wintrich is also an open gay conservative and the grandson of a Nazi occupation survivor. Lucian’s grandfather, a Jew, fled the Nazis in Poland and came to America penniless. Again – Lucian is the grandson of a Nazi occupation survivor – and yet the ADL is claiming that he is racist, anti-Semite and right-wing extremist.

    A cursory view of recent entries on the Twitter pages of Greeenblatt and the ADL is that there is much more passion on their end related to President Trump’s announcement yesterday of his plan to ban transgenders from military service than there was about the jihad slaughter of members an Israeli Jewish family during their sabbath dinner this past Friday.

    The ADL, once known as the Anti-Defamation League, tends to present itself as the foremost arbiter of “hate,” with a current mission much more general (and, presumably, more financially lucrative, in part due to ongoing “No Place for Hate”®-Initiative presentations at public schools) than its original one.

    According to Wikipedia, the organization formerly known as “the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith” was founded in October 1913 [in the aftermath of the Leo Frank Affair] by the Independent Order of B’nai B’rith, a Jewish service organization in the United States, its original mission statement was “to stop, by appeals to reason and conscience and, if necessary, by appeals to law, the defamation of the Jewish people.”

    In keeping with the now-apparently-universalist goals of the ADL, its Twitter page‘s current cover photo features six people, which include a female in a hijab, three people of African descent and no one identifiably — or even who looks minimally stereotypically — Jewish.

    OUTRAGEOUS=> Transgender Surgeries Would Cost Pentagon $1.3 Billion

    OUTRAGEOUS=> Transgender Surgeries Would Cost Pentagon $1.3 Billion

    With President Trump’s recent military transgender ban causing widespread liberal outrage, it is imperative to examine the real fiscal cost of trans enlistment into the armed forces. According to the Washington Free Beacon, over the next 10 years, tax- funded transgender surgeries would cost $1.3 billion.

    It is astounding how many put the “social justice” agenda before the burden of this nation’s hardworking taxpayers as well as the functional needs of the military. Each transgender surgery cost approximately $132,000. That expense multiplied by the .7% of the U.S military population that identifies as transgender, and would potentially need gender identity related medical treatment, generates a hefty financial cost.

    Congresswomen Vicky Hartzler is a strong opponent of taxpayer funded sex changes, who provided detailed calculations showing the estimated number of services members seeking gender reassignment surgeries.

    Via the Washington Free Beacon:

    The 2014 Williams Institute study found there were 15,500 transgender individuals actively serving, or 0.7 percent of the military population. By adjusting the figure for the enlistment numbers of 2,130,000, there are currently 14,910 transgender service members.

    Thirty percent will likely seek surgeries, or 4,473 transgender troops. The average cost per surgery is $132,000, which is a combination of the average cost of male to female ($140,450) and female to male ($124,400) surgeries.

    The cost to taxpayers for these surgeries would be $590 million, and $770 million with a 3 percent inflation rate by 2027.

    Hartzler’s office calculated the additional costs of surgeries for new transgender recruits every year.

    There are 178,000 new military members per year, and assuming 0.7 percent are transgender, 1,246 new transgender service members each year. Assuming 30 percent get surgeries, there would be an additional 374 surgical transitions per year, or 3,740 over 10 years. Those surgeries would cost $493 million, and with 3 percent inflation a total of $579 million by 2027.

    The costs of active duty transgender surgeries and those of new recruits over a 10-year period total $1.349 billion.

    According to the National transgender Discrimination Survey, 30% of transgender individuals say they want to have various sex reassignment operations in the future. It is silly to think that service members would be excluded in the implication of this statistic.

    Continued commentary from Congresswomen Vicky Hartzler:

    “Our military is the most effective, efficient, and well-funded fighting force in the world, and as the president notes, we cannot burden our armed forces with the tremendous costs and disruptions that transgenders in the military would entail,” she said. “With the challenges we are facing across the globe, we are asking the American people to invest their hard-earned money in national defense.”

    “Each dollar needs to be spent to address threats facing our nation,” “The costs incurred by funding transgender surgeries and the required additional care it demands should not be the focus of our military resources.”

    The Gateway Pundit previously reported on the Left’s backlash to President Trump’s decision to exclude trans people from the U.S military:

    The Washington Post, an anti-Trump paper that has reported several fallacious reports on the president this year, leaked another tip from a White House insider on Thursday.

    According to the leaker Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci will present a diagram to President Trump on Friday showing Reince Priebus’s leaks to the press.

    This comes after another leaker released information on Wednesday about President Trump’s dinner with Sean Hannity, Anthony Scaramucci and former FOX News executive Bill Shine.
    The Washington Post reported:

    Scaramucci took over the communications job on Wednesday, even though he was not supposed to start until Aug. 15 — a move that a White House official said was designed to thwart any attempt by Priebus to derail Scaramucci yet again.

    Scaramucci and his allies are compiling a diagram of the news organizations that they suspect received leaked information from Priebus, and they plan to present it to the president on Friday, according to a White House official who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the secret plan of attack.

    “If Reince wants to explain that he’s not a leaker, let him do that,” Scaramucci said in an interview with CNN early Thursday morning.

    On Fox News that same morning, Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to the president, described the leaks that Scaramucci was ranting about as “people using the press to shiv each other in the ribs.”

    As all of this was playing out, few came to Priebus’s defense. House Speaker Paul D. Ryan, a longtime friend and fellow Republican from Wisconsin, said at a news conference on Thursday that “Reince is doing a fantastic job at the White House, and I believe he has the president’s confidence.”

    Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer: Awan Brothers Sent Sensitive Intel to the Muslim Brotherhood (VIDEO)

    Just when you thought the case surrounding the Awan brothers could not get any darker, a new piece of news emerges. Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer revealed to Laura Ingraham, who filled in for Tucker Carlson Thursday evening, the Pakistani IT staffers were sending sensitive information to the Muslim Brotherhood. 

    The explosive claim is backed up by a report in Frontpage Magazine linking the Awan brothers to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Pakistani IT staffers worked for Democrat Congressmen Andre Carson as well.

    Frontpage reported:

    The office of Andre Carson, the second Muslim in Congress, had employed Imran Awan. As did the offices of Jackie Speier and Debbie Wasserman Schultz; to whom the letter had been addressed.

    Carson is the second Muslim in Congress and the first Muslim on the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and, more critically, is the ranking member on its Emerging Threats Subcommittee. He is also a member of the Department of Defense Intelligence and Overhead Architecture Subcommittee.

    The Emerging Threats Subcommittee, of which Carson is a ranking member, is responsible for much of counterterrorism oversight. It is the worst possible place for a man with Carson’s credentials.

    Carson had inherited his grandmother’s seat and exploited it to promote a radical Islamist agenda. He has interfaced with a laundry list of Islamist groups from CAIR to ISNA to ICNA to MPAC. Islamists have funded Carson’s career to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars. The Center for Security Policy has put together a dossier of Carson’s connections to the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood is the parent organization of many key Islamic terror groups posing a threat to our national security including Al Qaeda and Hamas.

    Andre Carson shared the stage at a CAIR banquet with Sirraj Wahaj: an unindicted co-conspirator in the World Trade Center bombing who had once declared,” You don’t get involved in politics because it’s the American thing to do. You get involved in politics because politics are a weapon to use in the cause of Islam.” CAIR itself had been named an unindicted co-conspirator in terror finance.

    It’s ironic the Awan brothers cry Islamophobia, when in all actuality, the religion they practice deserves all the scrutiny it receives. Simply put, the Awan brothers are of the Muslim faith sending sensitive information to Islamic fundamentalist group, Muslim Brotherhood.

    That didn’t stop their lawyer from complaining about Islamophobia and right-wingers exaggerating the case.

    Imran Awan’s attorney released a statement Wednesday after his arrest on Monday….

    The attorney blames Islamophobia, the ultra-right-wing and pizzagate for his client’s arrest. The attorney goes on to say Imran and his wife were traveling to Pakistan because he was just fired.

    They were both carrying $12,000 when they left the US. Imran was arrested before he could board his plane.

    Awan’s attorney released a statement Wednesday:

    “The attacks on Mr. Awan and his family began as part of a frenzy of anti-Muslim bigotry in the literal heart of our democracy, the House of Representatives. For months, we have had utterly unsupported, outlandish, and slanderous statements targeting Mr. Awan coming not just from the ultra-right-wing “pizzagate” media but from sitting members of Congress.”

    Awan’s attorney also blamed ‘extremist right-wing bloggers’ for harassing Awan’s children.

    To no one’s surprise, Awan and his lawyers are now playing victim after he was caught in a cyber-security breach and smashed the hard drives.

    Tony Shaffer: This is like a Quarantino movie with everything but a gimp but I think the gimp is still going to show up… Wasserman Schultz hes employed three brothers that are Pakistani origin at three times the salary of everybody else who does IT on Capitol Hill… What is really key here is not really about hard drives. It’s that these individuals during the time they worked for her on Capitol Hill in her position there as a member of Congress had massive access to all sorts of databases — to include sensitive information being held by the House Foreign Affairs Committee and other committees that they had access to. What this all comes down to is like OK, you can have all that, but what gets worse is she actually employs these folks to do hideous things behind the scenes. There is evidence now that at least one of these brothers was helping her to do the Bernie Sanders malevolent activities. They were trying to manipulate things against him. They actually helped her do things like voice change calls.

    Obviously, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was not a very good student.

    The Gateway Pundit has been closely reporting on Anthony Scaramucci, providing our readers up to the minute news surrounding the White House Communications Director. Moments ago, Scaramucci took to Twitter for the second time today to zing New Yorker reporter Ryan Lizza over their explosive interview. 

    “I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won’t happen again.”

    I made a mistake in trusting in a reporter. It won't happen again.

    — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 28, 2017

    The tweet zinged Ryan Lizza, who without naming, Scaramucci vowed never to trust, along with all reporters in the future.

    Welcome to the club, Anthony.

    Anthony Scaramucci set off a firestorm after the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza published a piece where the White House Communications Director called Reince Priebus a “f*cking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac.” Scaramucci also voiced his frustrations with leakers, saying he wants to ‘f*cking kill’ them, so the White House can focus more on passing President Trump’s ‘America First’ agenda.

    “I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump‘s agenda. #MAGA,” tweeted Scaramucci

    I sometimes use colorful language. I will refrain in this arena but not give up the passionate fight for @realDonaldTrump's agenda. #MAGA

    — Anthony Scaramucci (@Scaramucci) July 27, 2017

    As previously reported by The Gateway Pundit, Scaramucci said he wants to “f*cking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people.”

    The New Yorker reported:

    He reiterated that Priebus would resign soon, and he noted that he told Trump that he expected Priebus to launch a campaign against him. “He didn’t get the hint that I was reporting directly to the President,” he said. “And I said to the President here are the four or five things that he will do to me.” His list of allegations included leaking the Hannity dinner and the details from his financial-disclosure form.

    I got the sense that Scaramucci’s campaign against leakers flows from his intense loyalty to Trump. Unlike other Trump advisers, I’ve never heard him say a bad word about the President. “What I want to do is I want to fucking kill all the leakers and I want to get the President’s agenda on track so we can succeed for the American people,” he told me.

    He cryptically suggested that he had more information about White House aides. “O.K., the Mooch showed up a week ago,” he said. “This is going to get cleaned up very shortly, O.K.? Because I nailed these guys. I’ve got digital fingerprints on everything they’ve done through the F.B.I. and the fucking Department of Justice.”

    “What?” I interjected. “Well, the felony, they’re gonna get prosecuted, probably, for the felony.” He added, “The lie detector starts—” but then he changed the subject and returned to what he thought was the illegal leak of his financial-disclosure forms. I asked if the President knew all of this. “Well, he doesn’t know the extent of all that, he knows about some of that, but he’ll know about the rest of it first thing tomorrow morning when I see him.” Scaramucci said he had to get going. “Yeah, let me go, though, because I’ve gotta start tweeting some shit to make this guy crazy.”

    Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee have requested a second special counsel separate from Robert Mueller to probe aspects of the 2016 election and actions by the Obama administration including Hillary Clinton.

    As TGP reported Wednesday evening, the GOP was preparing to demand a special counsel to investigate Hillary, Comey and Lynch and their many crimes during the 2016 election. Now it’s official.

    Several months into the Trump administration and patriotic Americans are becoming increasingly frustrated watching President Trump get investigated for crimes he didn’t commit while the criminals in the Obama administration walk free.

    The only thing Hillary has accomplished in her decades in the D.C. swamp is successfully avoiding jail. LOCK HER UP!

    Via The Hill:

    Republicans on the House Judiciary Committee are asking for a second special counsel separate from Robert Mueller to probe aspects of the 2016 election and actions by officials in the Obama administration, including former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.) and other Republicans on the committee sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Thursday requesting the appointment of a second special counsel, according to NBC News reporter Frank Thorp.

    The letter asked that the second special counsel investigates officials including former Attorney General Loretta Lynch and former FBI Director James Comey.The lawmakers also cite concerns with Mueller’s probe, accusing it of being too narrow.

    The letter comes a day after Republicans on the committee voted to request documents related to Comey’s communications with the Obama administration and journalists.

    A letter was sent to AG Sessions and Deputy AG Rosenstein via Frank Thorp of NBC News:

    Republicans finally have control and yet the Democrats are the ones investigating crimes that never happened?! Enough is enough and the Republicans MUST go full throttle investigating Hillary, Obama, Lynch, Rice, Holder, Comey and the list goes on and on.

    The only reason why the Democrats started the Russian hoax was to deflect from their own crimes and the fake news media is complicit.

    FOX News contributor and attorney Gregg Jarrett argued tonight that several of the anti-Trump leakers committed felonies including former FBI Director James Comey.

    Gregg Jarrett: If you’re leaking like the FBI has about an ongoing investigation and it deals with a national security matter like Russia interference, yeah that’s a crime. And even if you do what Comey appears to have done which is to abscond with government property, convert it to his own purposes and convey it to somebody else for the purpose of leaking to the media. That is also as I read the statute a crime.

    Former FBI Director James Comey admitted during congressional testimony that he was a leaker of secret documents to the press.
    For some reason he was not arrested after the testimony.
